Yes, otherwise we e.g. end up with a filesystem that was modified in
1970 and e2fsck will complain on the next boot.

Since I filed this bug, someone suggested that a tool other than ntp
might be better since it's smaller.  Unfortunately, I cannot remember
the name right now.  I'm CCing -boot so other people can comment, but
unless there are great ideas, I'm still interesting in having an ntp
